Rising art world star Destinee Ross-Sutton first made headlines over the summer when she put together a nearly sold-out online exhibition for Christie’s titled “Say It Loud (I’m Black and Proud).” According to artnet, it came with a little specialty: every collector who bought work from the show had to sign a contract pledging not to flip the work.

Now, Ross-Sutton, a 25-year-old advisor, curator, and gallerist, surprised with opening a gallery space of her own. Same named Ross-Sutton Gallery’s inaugural show, “Black Voices: Friend of My Mind,” opened on December 19 in NY`s SoHo at the former home of iconic gallerist Paula Cooper. The exhibition kicks off its first appreanace of what Ross-Sutton described as a “nomadic gallery,” popping up in various cities around the globe.

The show features work by carefully selected Black artists and priority in acquiring pieces is given to black collectors.
